Plant and Environmental Metabolomics
To characterise at sub atomic level of the metabolome of plants under particular conditions is known as plant Metabolomics. Environmental metabolomics is the application of metabolomics that have enabled the interactions of organisms with their environment. This approach has many advantages for studying organism–environment interactions and for assessing molecular level of organism function and health. Terrestrial life necessitated a substantial increase in the capacity and generality with environmental Xenobiotics, including compounds present in food. It implies for bioaccumulation, monitoring of environmental Xenobiotics, toxicity of select chemicals, persistence and residue dynamics. As such, metabolomics is finding an increasing number of applications in the environmental sciences, ranging from understanding organismal responses to abiotic pressures, to investigating the responses of organisms to other biota. Metabolomics is used for understanding relation between genes and the biochemical composition of a plant in response to its environment can be obtained, and this information can be further used to assess gene function..
